Leadership Programme for School Leaders Batch 4 / Phase 2

Fifty counselors and discipline teachers are now better equipped with effective and essential leadership skills in order to support their school leaders’ important role in creating the right learning environment while motivating their colleagues and students. 

Apart from understanding about the transformation on school management, other key areas covered were skills in educational leadership, management, effective communication, emotional intelligence and problem skills. These participants from selected 25 PINTAR schools nationwide, were also exposed to different leadership and management perspectives, and experiences on leadership, which would make them more aware of their role as change catalysts of their schools.

The group underwent the Leadership Programme for PINTAR School Leaders 2015 (LPPSL) Batch 4 Phase 2, held at the Vistana Hotel Kuala Lumpur from 30 November-3 December. The session was a follow-up session from LPPSL Batch 4 Phase 1, which was held in September and attended by 50 school leaders from the same group of PINTAR schools.  Participants from both Phases 1 and 2 will be working closely together in spearheading effectiveness and excellence in their school.

The LPPSL provides awareness and understanding of critical factors that assist school leaders and deepens understanding of the school leadership role; the best practices in school leadership and management, and to provide opportunities for them to be equipped with effective management models to assist them in their leadership role. At the end of the four-day workshop, most participants indicated that the workshop modules would enable them to enhance their leadership skills. 

Both Phases 1 and 2 were facilitated by a team from the Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), led by Professor Dr Omar Abdull Kareem, an associate professor with the Department of Educational Management, Faculty of Management and Economics of UPSI.
